Amigurumi Gnome Crochet Pattern

Hi there, it’s San from Loopsan again, which means that there will be some crochet going on today :) As it’s summer it’s time for some crochet garden decoration (or something to put on your balcony if you’re lacking a garden, like I do ;))

  • Acrylic or cotton DK yarn in red, blue, skin colour and white (I use DK yarn as its the most common in the UK, you can use worsted yarn instead but you might want to adjust your hook size)
  • Size G/ 4 mm hook (if you’re using worsted yarn go up a hook size)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Poly-fill
  • Wobbly eyes

For this pattern you’ll need to know how to make single crochet (sc), half double crochet (hdc) and double crochet (dc). So super easy :) and you actually don’t even have to crochet the gnome’s beard, why not use some fabric for it?
